New Fence and Backyard!

Yep, we're tearing down the ivy, the beautiful ivy which made our backyard like an English garden.
It's been a tough decision but we realize it's time.  The ivy is out of control no matter how much we trim our side of the fence back, it's become a real monster.  Some of the branches are as big around as a tree trunk and it's pushing the fence down and rotting the wood.

We've decided, not only are we going to change that area of the yard but the whole backyard is going to get a new look.  We're taking out the grass (weeds, too) and putting in curving paths that lead you around to various places such as a hammock, an outdoor dining table and some raised planters.  I finally get to grow my own tomatoes along with a few other vegetables.  I'm so excited!

We're thinking about making our raised beds for the garden out of stone, similar to this.  Won't that be beautiful?
